Subject [jira] Commented: (SCM-368) Windows path length limitations can be overcome by feeding an absolute path to SVN
Date Thu, 02 Jul 2009 15:43:22 GMT

    [ http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/SCM-368?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=182296#action_182296
] 

Ovidiu Feodorov commented on SCM-368:
-------------------------------------

Just an observation, I found cases when cygwin svn fails with absolute cygwin paths, if those
paths are specified in a --targets file. More details about these cases here: http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/maven-users/200907.mbox/%3C4A4CD0FB.7070909@novaordis.com%3E

I'd suggest making using relative paths configurable from pom.

> When calling Subversion with relative paths there is a limit of 255 characters to the
path length.  If you call Subversion with an absolute path that no longer applies and you
now have access to 32K chars.  I have tried this myself and it does work.  Try feeding SVN
a path that is relative and is over 255 chars.  It will not be able to complete the transaction.
 Now, try to the same path again only as an absolute path and it will successfully complete
the transaction.  Here is a link to the forum where I found this information: http://en-us.www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/2.0.0.4/firstrun/.
